Highlights and Tips:
In the T.A. Wilson Great Gallery, see more than 50 historic aircraft, including a replica of the Boeing B&W, the first airplane designed and built by the company.
Also in the Great Gallery, a Taylor Aerocar III, an airplane/care that could drive on the road (towing the wings and tail or completely detaching from them) and fly in the sky.
At the William E. Boeing Red Barn, see the birthplace of The Boeing Company. It was moved to the museum from its initial location and restored in 1983.
If it is available for tours, be sure to visit the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the company's new plane. Inside, see a typical interior as well as informational displays.
An old Air Force One is also available to tour. It flew Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon.
